Coral has come straight of the catwalk and into our homes, and you can use it to create a timeless look. Coral sits between red, orange and pink on the colour wheel and has the impact of red, but the freshness of orange, yet it isn’t quite as feminine as pink. Coral can be so right, and this living room below is a great example of how to strike the perfect balance. The charcoal coloured furniture brings with it a soft, calming, yet formal atmosphere, and is brightened with coral and accents of white. A contemporary feel is added through the use of coral and red accessories which really lift the scheme.
Bold coral needs a blank canvas so team it with something subtle like soft greys. Add a striking focal point – such as this Chervil wallpaper then add statement accessories in coral to tie the look together. Pair with pale grey and clean whites also to tone the look down and keep it sophisticated
Brighten up your sofa with splashes of rich coral. This cushion is adorned with a simple daisy design, scatter it with cushions in a soft grey to cool down the look.
